Nikole Hahn, one of our regional editors, sent us this comment for the below poem by Karen Rigby:
“Always a rose entwined with rose, given in ardor or vengeance. Kiss-of-death.” This is my favorite line in the poem. There’s something dark and beautiful about this poem. It attracted my eye right away and it would be a poem I would read over and over again like Robert Frost.
